Alabama Moon

Moon Blake spent the eleven years of his young life in the forests of Alabama. His father, a radical government opponent, was clinging to the wildest conspiracy theories. When he is killed in an accident, the boy has to live on his own. According to his father's legacy, Moon sets off for Alaska, where people can still live freely. But Moon does not get far. The lawyer Mr Wellington informs the police, who take the boy into a children’s home. A narrow-minded warden rules the home, assisted by power-thirsty Constable Sanders. Moon, who is used to freedom, cannot cope with civilization, but for the first time he experiences friendship and what it means. Moon never loses sight of his goal: Alaska. Together with the other boys, he outwits Sanders and goes into the woods, where Moon knows his way around like no other. Soon the children get tired of this life. Although they do not want to return to the home, they do not want to live so primitively either. Only sickly Kit stands by him until the end. His health continues to deteriorate and he has to go to hospital, where he dies shortly afterwards. His last words are: "The time in the forest was the most wonderful time of my life." Moon, who considers himself responsible for the death of his friend, realizes that he wants and has to organize his life anew - with the help of Mr Wellington.
